Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Judges 9:22-10:18 Luke 24:13-53 Proverbs 14:11-12

“The Greatest Love”

“And early in the morning all the people came to him in the temple to hear him.”
[Luke 21:38]

The love of God is so great that we are able to have confidence on the Day of Judgement, on which the whole world will tremble. Isaiah 28:16: “therefore thus says the Lord God, ‘behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: whoever believes will not be in haste.’” Through the knowledge of this love we also have faith, so that we can pass muster at the judgement. The devil knows the weakness of our flesh, namely, that we do fittingly value the blood of Christ. Therefore if consciousness of a great sin weighs you down, comfort yourself with this blood of love. Surely the whole world does not grasp the tiniest syllable of the statement that God is love. Nothing that man can do can hold up against the blood of Christ. In Christ, I have confidence at the judgement. That is how I will live.
